What to Wear For Winter Sun Holidays

What to Wear For Winter Sun Holidays

If you are lucky enough to be jetting off to sunnier climes this winter, here are some key pieces to pack for a stylish holiday, and will make you feel like...

lounging by the pool.

Because of the time of the year, it can be slightly tricky to locate the correct items, but don't worry we are here to help.

First on the list is an eye catching kaftan and two bikinis or swimsuits - bringing more than one swim wear option is a very good idea. Hopefully you will be spending a lot of your time on a sun lounger with your feet up, and it's more enjoyable to have more than just one option in your suitcase. They also don't take up a lot of valuable suitcase room.

Department stores like John Lewis, Debenhams, and Marks and Spencer have a wide range of options for the winter sun worshiper as well as complimenting kaftans. Debenhams have a lovely animal print kaftan in this year's on trend pastel baby blue for under £30 which will make you feel very confident when striding around the resort.

If you are opting for a print kaftan, then chose a block coloured bikini, or vice a versa, so that your poolside wear doesn't look too busy. Also reversible bikinis are an excellent way to get more style mileage.

Getting into swimwear can be daunting after spending months under cover, so remember, if you have bumps and lumps that you want to hide, spend some time searching for a swimsuit that will pull things in all the right places.

If you do have a big chest opt for a v-neck halter neck version which will give you more support.

A pretty sarong is a stylish option as a stylish cover-up, simply tie around your waist and go and enjoy that sun downer. It can also be used to drape over your shoulders when eating al fresco that evening.

Accessories like a raffia beach basket and a sun hat are a perfect way to finish off your pool outfit.

If you do need to update your sunglasses, a good tip is to give yourself enough time in the airport to find the right pair. There is a wide range at your finger tips for a lower price.

Pack two dresses that can work during the day through to evening time. Dress them with heels and a stylish clutch when heading out for dinner.

It's a good idea to pack a skirt or a pair of dressy shorts that you can easily coordinate with two or three t-shirts or camisoles in your suitcase. Ted Baker, Zara, Reiss and French Connection have some gorgeous options as part of their new Spring Summer collection and a dress in this summer's statement floral print is a good up to date choice.

Pack two pairs of heels for evening time and mix and match with your dress.

A maxi-dress is also a lovely flexible and relaxed piece. Topshop, and Warehouse have some good options ranging from £50 upwards.

Yellow is very popular this Spring Summer and looks beautiful with a tan. French Connection and Oasis have some lovely short sleeve tops in this colour that will work fabulously with a pair of white or denim shorts.

Other accessories such as a colourful clutch is ideal for evening time and when you are on holidays, there is no room for a large bulky statement bag.

Jewellery should also be scaled back, a tassel necklace, a cocktail ring or some statement earrings are perfect choices.

And most importantly, relax, enjoy, and come back refreshed.

Client Testimonials

I found out that the clothes I was always buying did not create a good image for my shape or age. If only I had invested in a personal stylist years ago!

It really was time to get my wardrobe into shape. My personal stylist knew what worked on me and what didn't. The advice was invaluable and now I have an outfit for every occasion!

The whole experience has changed my perspective about me and my life and my clothes. I feel so much more confident and I can't thank you enough.

She knew exactly what would suit me. I tried on outfits I would never have thought of. It was fantastic to go shopping with a true expert.

Every time I go out I feel brilliant and it's so easy to dress now. I have had so many compliments which has really boosted my self-esteem.

I now know what to wear and when which is so helpful having just had a baby. My body shape has changed but I now know I can still look good. My husband is very happy too!

She's done things to my eyes that remind me of pictures taken 25 years ago!!! I would recommend the make-up masterclass to anyone. The advice is truly fantastic.

Every experience was over and above my expectations and something I will cherish for a very long time. I can't thank the whole team enough - my personal stylist, my make-up artist and my hair stylist were fantastic, and the organisation of the services were flawless.

It's the little changes that make all the difference, and you've raised her self-appreciation and confidence, great work. It's the best Christmas present I have ever bought my wife.
